School Council

School Council have been taking part in the Cleaner Hatfield Action Campaign during the first week of March. We have been collecting litter from the grass verges and car park near our school. In 15 minutes each day we filled 2 bin liners with rubbish. We have been shocked to see how much litter there is around our town.

Welcome to the St. Philip Howard School Council page!

This page will be updated regularly to keep you informed of any forthcoming events and to update you with the results from any fundraising activities organised by the committee.

Who We Are:

The School Council is a committee that is established at the start of the Autumn term. The process begins with any year 6 child who wishes to stand for chairperson. Each candidate must campaign for votes from the rest of the school. To start the campaign rolling, each child presents their manifesto to the whole school and staff in a special assembly. They work on their ideas during lessons and usually have a campaign partner to help them write a speech.

After each manifesto has been heard, the children return to class and the voting process begins. Once all the teachers have handed in their results, then it becomes very exciting indeed!

The successful candidates are announced the following Friday during assembly and the four candidates are presented with special School Council badges and their photo is taken to display on the School Council board. The main four roles of the School Council are:


Following this part, each class then decides on two representatives, usually children who wish to stand for this important role.

Once the committee is established, the Class Representatives are given their School Council badges during the assembly and then the meetings begin.
